One of my 2012 goals, if you remember, was to cook more for my family.
After looking through Pinterest at some of the awesome meal planning boards that other mommas have made, I decided to make my own.
Mine is no where near the creative factor that the ones I pinned are, but I am an instant-satisfaction kind of girl, and I didn't want this to be a work-in-progress kind of board.
I got in a bad habit of waiting to ask Mr. Indecisive what he wanted for dinner... throwing out ideas... watching him turn up his nose to all of my ideas... and then deciding it was a fend-for-yourself type of night.
He and I have already discussed the new "eat it or starve" plan... but I will do my best to make more of the things that he loves, that I may not be a fan of, as well.
I truly feel that this board will hold me more accountable in the kitchen.
Here is what I came up with:
It is raining here today, so I have smothered steak going in the crock pot, and I have already placed today's magnet onto the board!
Beckham is down for a nap...
and I am taking a break from teaching Maddox, and letting him "just color" like he asked.
For the record, I could have never been a teacher.
My child is brilliant. [spoken from a true mother]
He soaks in the craziest information like a sponge...
Just yesterday, he told Lance his training wheels work like a "stabilizer", keeping him on the bike and stable.
He has been able to identify his colors, letters, numbers and shapes since before he was 2.
He can count to ten in Spanish-- as well as know his colors in Spanish.
He does simple math.
Please explain to me why...
the child can not write a letter.
It is like watching a noodle attempt to draw a straight line...
and the moment he flips his wrist just right to make some barely recognizable object, he starts explaining why he really just wanted to color a feather, or ear, or spoon.
It makes me want to pull each hair from my head.
just let him color Holly, it will come.
